The other core mission of our organization is to raise the awareness of children, parents, coaches, league administrators, educators and legislators regarding both the significant challenges and opportunities in today’s youth sports world. We recently hosted a community discussion featuring a panel of experts in the areas of youth psychology, coaching and orthopedics to provide perspective and inform parents. As a result of that meeting we are now working to create a committee of all of our town’s youth sports organizations, along with representatives from our school, recreation, health departments and youth commission to provide a framework for consistent periodic collaboration to share knowledge and provide more beneficial experiences to all participants.  We also plan for this group to help provide input and recommendations to the Wellesley Public Schools (WPS) Athletics Review that Wellesley High School Principal Jamie Chisum is currently working on to submit to Superintendent Lussier this summer.
